Default Another Delay to 2010: Alpha Protocol

Rumors all over the Internet about a Sega meeting document revealing dissapointment in Alpha Protocol may have been true, seems the game was delayed to 2010.

I also heard this in an industry podcast, "well the game was delayed to next year so..." and I was like, it was? So I go to gamestop.com, always the first place to spot a delay, and yep...

Also, Kotaku: http://kotaku.com/5368298/retailers-...protocol-delay

June, 2010.

The first half of next year is INSANE.

I bet Mass Effect 2 is delayed to holiday to get the hell out of Q1.

Balls! - I already pre-ordered it on steam to get Space Siege, which turned out to be pretty rubbish.

Possibly it was inevitable though, all the previews I read said it seemed a bit uninspired in the level design.

Still, at least it means i'll have time to play Dragon Age, Resident Evil, Red Faction, Mini Ninjas, Batman, Risen, Operation Flashpoint, Borderlands and Modern warfare.

I'm much less concerned with a lack of things to play this holiday than with an abundance of things to play early next year.

I wasn't sure on this one, but some of what I read was very positive... I'm mostly just surprised that it was pushed back so far from a launch date that is really just around the corner. A couple weeks delay isn't unheard of for last minute screwups, but eight months... wow.

For the sake of the people who preordered, I hope this doesn't become vaporware. Probably won't, but always a fear with long delays.
